Panasonic New Zealand is expanding its popular collection of
Home Appliances with the introduction of a new Built-in Kitchen
Appliance range, initially including Built-in Ovens, Compact Combination Ovens and Induction Hobs.
Combining sophisticated design with the latest innovations in
home appliance technology, Panasonic's new range of Built-in
Kitchen Appliances have been designed to form a complete,
integrated kitchen solution for the ultimate performance,
convenience, and flexibility.
With the new Built-in Kitchen Appliance range, Panasonic has
used its clever energy-saving technologies including Inverter,
Genius Sensor+ and EcoMode, to save consumers time, money and
energy, whilst delivering better results and the best possible
experience in the kitchen.
Michael Opie, Home Appliances Product Manager, Panasonic New
Zealand, says, "Designed especially for New Zealand households,
Panasonic's new Built-in Kitchen Appliances have a wide range of
outstanding features to offer improved flexibility and control,
user-friendly operation. They are also equipped with a range of
safety features to keep you and your family safer in the
"They have been designed to integrate perfectly into any modern
kitchen and all appliances in the range share a uniform and stylish
design to bring a coordinated look and feel to your kitchen."
Panasonic Built-in Ovens
Panasonic's Built-in Ovens have a wide-range of practical
features including smooth-gliding extendable telescopic shelves for
easy access and more space in the oven cavity. The ovens feature
the innovative Auto Menu function that calculates cooking times
based on weight, food types and heating modes. There are up to 80
Auto Menu options for a wide-range of foods.
The Built-in Ovens also offer Easy Clean technology, including a
Pyrolytic self-cleaning system that breaks down residue into a fine
ash at a very high temperature, meanwhile Panasonic's Built-in
Ovens with a highly-durable Catalytic liner break down greasy
build-ups while cooking.
Panasonic's Built-in Ovens are also equipped with 'Ultra-Cool'
doors which employ an innovative cooling system to ensure the outer
surface of the door stays as cool as possible, even when the oven
cavity reaches high temperatures. The soft closing doors have also
been designed to close gently, quietly and safely.
Panasonic Compact Combination Ovens
Panasonic's high-powered Combination Ovens combine the functions of an
oven and microwave into one compact shape. Consumers can grill,
steam, heat or even combine functions to achieve perfect cooking
results. The Combination Ovens feature Panasonic's unique
energy-saving Inverter technology for precise control of power
levels, even cooking when the Microwave function is utilised. The
Combination Ovens also feature a spacious flatbed design, making
the oven cavity 45% larger than conventional microwave ovens with a
turntable. The flatbed can be easily wiped clean after use and the
altruistic catalytic back plate automatically burns away grease
build-ups from food, keeping inside surfaces cleaner for longer.
They also feature a clear and user-friendly LED
control for intuitive operation.
Panasonic Induction Hobs
Panasonic's Induction Hobs have been designed for
high-performance and complete control in the kitchen. Available in
600mm and 900mm, they have a FlexZone design which can accommodate
cookware of different shapes, whilst still distributing heat
evenly. Panasonic's innovative Genius Sensor+ technology delivers
quicker and more accurate temperature control. The Genius
Sensor+ measures the temperature of the cookware bottom, instead of
the temperature of the cooking surface, and automatically adjusts
The Induction Hobs have also been designed with safety in mind;
they only heat up when in direct contact with cookware and they
will automatically switch off if empty cookware or cooking utensils
are left on the cooking zones.
A legacy of innovation
Panasonic has drawn on its extensive and innovative history in
kitchen appliances to create the new range of Built-in Kitchen
Appliances. Panasonic Corporation has produced and developed a
highly-successful series of Induction Hobs in Japan and Europe over
the past 40 years. Starting with the "Countertop 100V" Induction
Hobs in 1974, Panasonic then launched flat surface Induction Hobs
in 1990, followed by an illuminated ring design model in 2000. In
2007 the optical power sensor model which enabled high-powered
stir-frying was introduced, before Panasonic's unique energy-saving
ECONAVI technology was added to the Induction Hobs range from 2012
to reduce power consumption.
The new Built-in Kitchen Appliances range, now available in New
Zealand, draws on this rich history and has been adapted to suit
the needs of busy Kiwi households with the quick start-up and auto
water boiling features.
Panasonic's Built-in Kitchen Appliances range is available from
selected Harvey Norman Electrical stores from Monday 30 November
